Tackle Recommendations for Three to Six Day Trips
following list of gear will help our passengers prepare for their
trip. It is by no means a complete list - and some may consider
it to be more than needed. A big part of the service we offer
is to make sure our passengers are as prepared as possible. Of
course, if you have any questions, please feel you can call us
at (619) 221-8500. We're standing by to assist you in planning
your long-range adventure.
DUFFEL BAGS - Considered best for storage, and for dirty laundry.
BOOTS - One pair of short, comfortable boots.
||PANTS - Bring a change for each day. Light material is best.
SHIRTS - You may need 1 or 2 each day. If
you're sun sensitive long sleeves are in order. Light fabric
for quick drying and coolness in warm weather. Sweatshirts
are handy for nights and cool weather.
SOCKS - Yes! The more the better. At least
a pair for each day.
SHORTS - For those hot sultry summer days.
UNDIES - Don't forget them!
JACKET - For those cool fishing nights and
SNEAKERS - Bring 2 pair so you'll always have
a dry spare.
HAT - Wide brim, baseball caps, foreign legion. Think Sun
LIGHT RAIN GEAR - Very seldom used, but appreciated when it
SUN GLASSES - Polarized to cut the glare. Security straps
will prevent loss over the side.

RUBBER GLOVES - For handling your catch at the end of trip.
HAY HOOK - For dragging fish around the dock.
CAMERA & FILM - Make sure you have a supply of film and
batteries. Cordless video recorders are also welcome.
ENTERTAINMENT - Use the travel time to catch up on that favorite
book. We have a great selection of DVDs and VHS tapes, but you're more
than welcome to bring one or two to share.
WRITING MATERIAL - Notebook, stationary, pens and pencils
for making notes on what to bring next trip (and what to leave
behind.) Keep a daily journal of the action - it will add to your
SEA SICK MEDICATION & REMEDIES - Check with your Physician
for preferred method of prevention (Transderm patches are back!
These appear to be highly successful.) There are several over-the-counter
products that are very effective. Your local Pharmacist would
be another excellent source for recommendations.
